Default Barton for reading?

We just got the results from my ds (9) educational testing. She told me he was dyslexic and had low processing speed and memory. he is definitely smart, but he's just been getting so frustrated. We aren't really reading at all yet.

I know Barton has been mentioned before, and Quiteria has also given me a lot of info on the memory/processing issues. i just wonder if it would be a good fit for us. It seems like one of the most accessible programs to homeschoolers, its not cheap, but not horrific either. We are pretty rural and can't find any help close by either.

I've seen All About Reading as a cheaper? alternative to Barton, not sure if that's helpful or not.

Default Re: Barton for reading?

We use Barton & love it.
My DD is profoundly dyslexic (10 years old) & went from not reading, to somewhat reading independently in 4 months of Barton.
We're currently on level 3, so have a long ways to go still.

It's actually really affordable if you buy and resell used levels. Especially if you consider the cost of not properly treating the dyslexia.

We'd tried AAR previously, but it did NOT work for DD. It's a "diluted" Orton-Gillingham, and while it does work for some dyslexics, it's not designed for people with severe dyslexia.

I'm beyond pleased with Barton & DD is already further along than I thought she might ever be. It seems so simple, but it works wonders!
